He’s kind of perfect for the job. There are a lot of wrestlers on the WWE roster today and some of them are going to be presented differently than others. Some of them are bigger stars and that means they are going to be out front for WWE, often appearing outside of the company’s programming to represent the company. That was the case this weekend in a special way.
WWE Champion Big E. was a guest on this Saturday’s FOX’s Big Noon Kickoff college football coverage. Big E. was on the show to hype up the Penn State vs. Iowa football game, as he played defensive lineman at Iowa before entering professional wrestling. During his appearance, Big E. made a special entrance, did his signature catchphrase about Iowa and made a prediction on the game.
This was pretty awesome. Check out Big E.’s appearance:
Opinion: This is the kind of area where Big E. excels and it is great to see that he is getting the chance to be out there. The good thing is that he has the personal connection to Iowa so it isn’t like there is anyone else in WWE who would have fit in here. It was a cool thing to see and the fact that Big E. is the reigning WWE Champion makes it even better for both WWE and Big E.
What did you think of the appearance? How long will Big E. hold the title? Let us know in the comments below.
